There are many ways to achieve the perfect eyebrows, but it comes down to two main methods: natural brushed up brows or defined thick brows. Each has its own merits, and it really depends on your personal preference as to which look you go for.

If you want natural brushed-up brows, the key is to use a light hand when applying the product. Use a fine-tipped pencil or brush to fill in sparse areas, then blend out with a spoolie brush. The goal is to create soft, believable brows that look like they’ve been perfectly groomed – not drawn on.

Start by filling in the entire brow with the product (pencil, powder, or pomade). Then use a brush to define the shape and keep everything neat and tidy. This look is great for creating a strong, dramatic brow that frames your face.

So, which look is right for you? It honestly depends on your own personal preference and what will make you feel most confident. Experiment with different methods and products until you find the perfect eyebrow look!
